Singapore’s MediaCorp Selects EVS for its HD News Production
“The size and scope of this installation is impressive,” said Jerome Wauthoz, EVS market manager for broadcast center solutions. “But critically important in the live environment is the reliability of EVS solutions and the unsurpassed speed for breaking news. The workflow will also provide the instant access to all content so essential to productivity and ultimately to the quality of MediaCorp’s programming.”
When fully implemented later this year, the EVS News PAM system will provide infrastructure for 56 HD-SDI channels, 500TB of central storage equivalent to 12,000 hours of HD content (plus 20,000 hours of low resolution), and over 500 journalist editing stations.
The integrated solution from EVS will facilitate all aspects of state-of-the-art news production, from recording to playout, including central shared storage and archiving, high- and low-resolution client browsing, onsite and remote editing, playout and NRCS integration.
“MediaCorp has selected award-winning live news production solutions from EVS already in use by major broadcasting networks across the globe,” added Stephane Jauroyou, EVS APAC VP Sales. “We look forward to working together to make News @ Mediapolis facility among the best in the world.”
EVS is globally recognized as the technology leader for live video production. The company introduced Live Slow Motion replay in 1994, and has continued to build on its reputation for quality and reliability with solutions that enhance live sports, entertainment and news content. Innovations – such as the C-Cast multimedia platform and DYVI IT-based switcher – are raising the bar for live production enrichment, management and distribution. Broadcasters, rights owners, producers and venues alike use EVS to maximize the value of their productions and increase revenue streams.
The company is headquartered in Belgium with offices in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and North America, and provides sales and technical support to over 100 countries.
